Sirius Pet Styling in Las Vegas, NV is dedicated to keeping our Dog & Cat Grooming customers up-to-date and informed on a variety of topics related to the health and well-being of their pup. This particular topic discusses how to get rid of bad dog breath.
A common misconception is thinking bad dog breath is normal, when in fact, bad dog breath is actually a sign of an unhealthy mouth. If left untreated, sick teeth and gums quickly lead to life-threatening health problems.
It’s probably been awhile since your dogs last grooming appointment so we wanted to share some DIY remedies you can perform at home:
1. PREVENT BAD DOG BREATH WITH REGULAR TEETH BRUSHING Most dogs teeth can be brushed once a week, but for small dogs with pushed-in faces you’ll want to try and brush their teeth daily. This is because because the conformation of their little mouths leaves them extra-vulnerable to decay.
2. DENTAL CHEWS HELP ELIMINATE BAD BREATH There’s a lot of dental chew options to choose from and it’s important to choose the right type. Look for one that contains breath-freshening chlorophyll, cinnamon and clove.
3. DOGS CAN ALSO DRINK BAD BREATH AWAY WITH WATER ADDITIVES Water additives that fight bad breath in dogs are becoming popular with owners because of the ease of use. A quick search online for pet dental water with chlorophyll will help you narrow down your search.
4. COCONUT OIL CAN HELP WITH BAD DOG BREATH Coconut oil doesn’t just boost digestive, immune system and metabolic functions — it also helps to combat bad dog breath. Put a teaspoonful over your dog’s food every single day, and you’ll soon sniff sweeter breath— plus dogs love the taste; for them, coconut oil is a sweet treat. You can also brush your dogs teeth with coconut oil.
